Did anyone have any mosin luck this year?

Postby ShootnMathews » Wed Dec 18, 2013 7:31 pm

Just wondering, Did anyone have any mosin luck this year?

I personally took mine as a backup but mostly used my new 6.5-284. I did get a buck with it. Nothing special. It was a cull buck. 3-1/2 yrs old, 16.75" inside spread, poor mass and very short tines. It was a 200 yard shot through the woods. I watched the buck for an hour or more , fighting a smaller 9pt buck, made a rub after running the smaller buck off, browsing around some, bedded down twice, bred a doe twice. He did give me a nice show before a shot. I got to watch a lot of buck rut behavior so it was a good learning experience. I was a near perfect shot and the buck ran 40 yards before piling up.

Good job farmer. Got a pic?

Ben. Good job. I be that was a tough shot. I've got a 12x fixed SWFA on mine. At 10 yards one would prob just see all hair. :D

Good job both of you.

None with mine, but I did get a scrub 6 pointer with a .50 muzzleloader. I'm hoping next year will be the year!

My 6.5-284 buck. We don't ever go on weight here. We try to manage our property for quality genetics and this guy just didn't have them. He was 3-1/2 yrs old. The rack was 16-3/4" wide but tine length was very short and mass was very spindly. The shot was only 200 yards. Not exactly long range but a clean kill anyways. Overall a good management deer.

Savage is the best factory new gun out there right now.
Good looking deer. Did he have any broken points?
